  1. Disc 1 - Come Monday

    COME MONDAY
    Jimmy Buffett

    Headin' up to San Francisco
    for the Labor Day weekend show,
    I've got my hush-puppies on,
    I guess I never was meant for
    glitter rock and roll.
    And honey I didn't know
    that I'd be missin' so.

    (Chorus)
    Come Monday It'll be all right,
    Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
    I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
    and I just want you back by my side.

    Yes it's been quite a summer,
    rent-a-cars and west bound trains.
    And now your off on vacation,
    something you tried to explain.
    And darling I love you so that's
    the reason I just let you go.

    Chorus

    I can't help it honey,
    your that much a part of me now.
    Remember the night in Montana when
    we said there'd be no room for doubt.

    I hope your enjoying the scenery,
    I know that it's pretty up there.
    We can go hiking on Tuesday,
    with you I'd walk anywhere.
    California has worn me quite thin,
    I just can't wait to see you again.

    End Chorus

  2. Disc 1 - Tin Cup Chalice

    Tin Cup Chalice
    Boats, Beaches, Bars, Ballads

    I want to go back to the island,
    Where the shrimp boats tie up to the piling.
    Give me oysters and beer for dinner every day of the year,
    And I'll feel fine, I'll feel fine.

    Chorus:
    'Cause I want to be there,
    I want to go back down and lie beside the sea there.
    With a tin cup for a chalice
    Fill it up with good red wine,
    And I'm-a chewin' on a honeysuckle vine.

    Yeah, now the sun goes slidin' 'cross the water;
    Sailboats, they go searchin' for the breeze.
    Salt air it ain't thin,
    It can stick right to your skin,
    And make you feel fine.
    It makes you feel fine.

    Repeat Chorus.

    Yes, and now you heard my strange proposal;
    Get that Packard up and let's move.
    I want to be there before the day
    Tries to steal away and leave us behind;
    I've made up my mind;

    Repeat Chorus

  3. Disc 1 - Growing Older But Not Up

    GROWING OLDER BUT NOT UP
    By Jimmy Buffett

    I rounded first never thought of the worst
    As I studied the shortstop's position
    Then crack went my leg like the shell of an egg
    Someone call a decent physician
    I'm no Pete Rose, I can't pretend
    While my mind is quite flexible
    these brittle bones don't bend

    Chorus
    I'm growing older but not up
    My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
    So let the winds of change blow over my head
    I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead

    Sometimes I see me as an old manatee
    Heading south as the waters grow colder
    He tries to steer clear of the hum drum so near
    It cuts prop scars deep in his shoulders
    That's how it flows right to the end
    His body's still flexible but that
    Barnacle brain don't bend

    Chorus
    So now don't get me wrong
    This is not a sad song
    Just events that I have happened to witness
    And time takes it's toll as we head for the poll
    As the days grow more complicated the night life still wins

    Chorus

    Let the winds of change blow over my head
    I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead

  4. Disc 1 - Coast of Carolina

    Coast Of Carolina
    By Jimmy Buffett/Mac McAnally

    Little roadside restaurant we artfully complain
    Groovy tells the waitress that his chicken died in vain
    Most every day goes by according to design
    I live this dream but still it seems I have you on my mind

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    We can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart

    I can't see the future but I know it's comin' fast
    It's not that hard to wind up knee deep in the past
    It's come a lot of Mondays
    Since the phone booth that first night
    Through years and miles and tears and smiles
    I want to get it right

    CHORUS

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    We can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    These days I'm up about the time I used to go to bed
    Living large was once the deal, now I watch the stars instead
    They are timeless and predictable unlike most things that I do
    But I tell the wind and my old friend I'm headed home to you

    CHORUS

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    Hell we can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart
    From the bottom of my heart

  5. Disc 1 - Paradise

    Paradise

    I got stuck in paradise
    I'm free in my head
    Changed my attitude
    And my head's turned dred
    I just met Mickey Maloney
    On the beach down the shore
    Said to call him in New York
    And come knock on some doors
    I thought it was kind
    It's not on my mind
    I'm sitting here
    Doin some quality time

    This one's for them babies bigots?
    In Madison Avenue
    In their stretch limosines
    And three page contracts too
    And the ??hair of the trendies?
    Who didn't have a clue
    And if they did, didn't know what to do
    And for my buddies in freight elevators
    And 8th Avenue
    With their flight-cases and axes
    And their tokens too
    Intelligenes
    Show shredded jeans [dreams]?
    But still survived by gigs and scenes
    And for Bob and they boys
    Down in Washington square
    I miss you all, I just wish you were here

    I got stuck in paradise
    I'm free in my head
    Changed my attitude
    And my head's turned dred
    I just met Mickey Maloney
    On the beach down the shore
    Said to call him in New York
    And come knock on some doors
    I thought it was kind
    It's not on my mind
    I'm sitting here
    Doin some quality time

  6. Disc 1 - Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans

    Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans
    Louis Alter and Eddie Delange

    Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
    Miss her both night and day
    I know it's gettin' wrong but the feeling's gettin' stronger
    Longer I been away
    Miss the moss covered vines the tall sugar pines
    Where mockin' birds used to sing
    I'd love to see that ole lazy Mississippi hurryin' into spring

    Moonlight on the bayou Creole tunes fill the air
    I dream of magnolia's in bloom wishin you where here

    Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
    When that's where you left your heart
    And there's one thing more, I miss the one I care for
    More than I miss New Orleans

    Moonlight on the bayou sweet magnolia blossoms in the air
    How I long to see that mighty Mississippi runnin' into spring

    Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
    When that's where you left your heart
    And there's one thing more, I miss the one I care for
    More than I miss New Orleans

    More than I miss New Orleans

  7. Disc 1 - Nautical Wheelers

    A1A

    Nautical Wheelers who call themselves sailors
    Play fiddle tunes under the stars.
    Petticoats rustle, working shoes scuffle,
    Hustle on down to the bars.

    Where the jukebox is blastin'
    and the liquor is flowing
    an occasional bottle of wine.
    That's cause everyone here is just more than
    contented to be living and dying in three quarter time.

    Chorus
    And It's dance with me, dance with me
    Nautical Wheelers.
    Take me to stars that you know.
    Come on and dance with me,
    Nautical Wheelers
    I want so badly to go.

    Well the left foot it'll follow where the
    Right foot has traveled down to the
    Sidewalks unglued.
    And into the street of my city so neat,
    Where nobody cares what you do.
    And Sonja's just grinnin'
    And Phil is ecstatic and
    Mason has jumped in the sea.
    While I'm hangin' on to a line
    from my sailboat oh,
    Nautical Wheelers save me.

    Chorus

    Well the sunrise will bring on the
    sleep that's escaped us and
    everyones off to their bed.
    There'll be huggin' and sqeezin',
    a little pleasin' and teasin'
    and rubbin' of each others' head.
    So won't you dream on comrades;
    seems nothing affects you,
    nothing, no reason nor rhyme.
    That's cause everyone here is just more than
    contented to be living and dying in three quarter time.

  8. Disc 1 - Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season

    Trying to Reason with the Hurricane Season

    Squalls out on the Gulfstream,
    Big storms coming soon.
    I passed out in my hammock,
    God, I slept way past noon.
    Stood up and tried to focus,
    I hoped I wouldn't have to look far.
    I knew I could use a Bloody Mary,
    So I stumbled next door to the bar.

    Chorus
    And now I must confess,
    I could use some rest.
    I can't run at this pace very long.
    Yes, it's quite insane,
    I think it hurts my brain.
    But it cleans me out and then I can go on.

    There's something about this Sunday
    It's a most peculiar gray
    Strolling down the avenue
    That's known as A1A
    I was feeling tired, then I got inspired.
    And I knew that it wouldn't last long
    So all alone I walked back home, sat on my beach
    And then I made up this song.

    Chorus

    Well, the wind is blowin' harder now
    Fifty knots or there about,
    There's white caps on the ocean.
    And I'm watching for water spouts
    It's time to close the shutters
    It's time to go inside.
    In a week I'll be in gay Paris;
    That's a mighty long airplane ride.

    Chorus
    Yes, It cleans me out and then I can go on.

  9. Disc 1 - Banana Republics

    BANANA REPUBLICS

    Down to the Banana Republics
    Down to the tropical sun
    Go the expatriated American
    Hopin' to find some fun

    Some of them go for the sailing
    Brought by the lure of the sea
    Tryin' to find what is ailing
    Living in the land of the free
    Some of them are running to lovers
    Leaving no forward address
    Some of them are running tons of ganja
    Some are running from the IRS

    Late at night you will find them
    In the cheap hotels and bars
    Hustling the senoritas
    While they dance beneath the stars
    Spending those renegade pesos
    on a bottle of rum and a lime
    Singin' give me some words I can dance to
    Or a melody that rhymes

    First you learn the native custom
    Soon a word of Spanish or two
    You know that you cannot trust them
    Cause they know they can't trust you

    Expatriated American feelin' so all alone
    Telling themselves the same lies
    that they told themselves back home

    Down to the Banana Republics
    Things aren't as warm as they seem
    None of the natives are buying
    any second hand American dreams

    Late at night you will find them
    In the cheap hotels and bars
    Hustling the senoritas
    while they dance beneath the stars
    Spending those renegade pesos
    On a bottle of rum and a lime
    Singing give me some words I can dance to
    Or a melody that rhymes

    Down to the Banana Republics
    Down to the tropical sun
    Go the expatriated Americans
    Hopin' to find some fun

  10. Disc 1 - He Went To Paris

    HE WENT TO PARIS
    Jimmy Buffett

    He went to Paris looking for answers
    To questions that bothered him so
    He was impressive, young and aggressive
    Saving the world on his own.
    But the warm summer breezes
    The French wines and cheeses
    Put his ambition at bay
    And summers and winters
    Scattered like splinters
    And four or five years slipped away.

    Then he went to England, played the piano
    And married an actress named Kim
    They had a good life, she was a good wife
    Bore him a young son named Jim.
    And all of the answers and all of the questions
    He locked in his attic one day
    'Cause he liked the quiet clean country living
    And twenty more years slipped away.

    Well the war took his baby, the bombs killed his lady
    And left him with only on eye
    His body was battered, his world was shattered
    And all he could do was just cry.
    While the tears were falling, he was recalling
    The answers he never found
    So he hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean
    And left England without a sound.

    Now he lives in the islands, fishes the pilings
    And drinks his green label each day
    He's writing his memoirs and losing his hearing
    But he don't care what most people say.
    Through eighty-six years of perpetual motion
    If he likes you he'll smile then he'll say
    Jimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragic
    But I had a good life all the way.

    And he went to Paris looking for answers
    To questions that bother him so.

  11. Disc 1 - Last Mango In Paris

    LAST MANGO IN PARIS
    Jimmy Buffett, Marshall Chapman, Will Jennings & Michael Utley

    I went down to Captain Tony's to get out of the heat
    When I heard a voice call out to me, "Son, come have a seat"
    I had to search my memory as I looked into those eyes
    Our lives change like the weather but a legend never dies

    He said, "I ate the last mango in Paris
    Took the last plane out of Saigon
    Took the first fast boat to China
    And "Jimmy, there's still so much to be done."

    I had a third world girl in Buzios
    With a pistol on each hand
    She always kept me covered
    As we moved from land to land
    I had a damn good run on wall street
    With my high fashion model wife
    Til I woke up dry beneath the African sky
    Just me and my Swiss Army knife

    I ate the last mango in Paris
    Took the last plane out of Saigon
    Took the first fast boat to China
    And Jimmy there's still so much to be done

    We shot the breeze for hours
    As the sun fell from the skies
    And like the sun he disappeared before my very eyes
    It was somewhere past dark-thirty
    When I went back to the head
    I read upon the dingy wall
    The words the old man said

    I ate the last mango in Paris...
    ....so much to be done.
    Why don't we wander and follow la vie dansante.

  12. Disc 2 - L'air De La Louisiane

    L'AIR DE LA LOUISIANE
    Jesse Winchester

    Promenade dans un bois la vielle Louisiane
    Les ombres lougnes nos pas silents
    l'air de la Louisiane


    Toi et moi ne parlant pas
    en sucant d'la canne
    Pour un instant je suis content en
    l'air de la Louisiane
    Pour un instant je suis content en
    l'air de la Louisiane

    English Lyric
    A walk in the woods of old Louisiana
    the shadows are long
    Our steps are silent in the Louisiana air
    You and I say nothing as we suck sugar cane
    For one minute I'm happy in the Louisiana air

  13. Disc 2 - Reggaebilly Hill

    (Michael Garrett)

    I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS DREAMIN'
    I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS REAL
    EVERYTHING WAS MOVIN'
    YET EVERYTHING WAS STILL

    PEOPLE CAME FROM EVERYWHERE
    AND NO ONE FELT A CHILL
    THEY LINGERED IN THE VALLEY
    DOWN BY REGGAEBILLY HILL

    THEY CAME ACROSS THE WATER
    THEY CAME ACROSS THE SAND
    EVERYONE WAS SINGING
    OH YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD THE BAND
    SONG OF ADORATION OF THE EVERLASTING WILL
    GATHERED THEM TOGETHER THERE ON REGGAEBILLY HILL

    CHORUS

    OCEAN DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH
    AND THE RIVER OF BLOOD FLOWED DOWN
    POURIN' OUT FROM A WOUND THAT WOULD NOT HEAL
    ALWAYS AND FOREVER WE'LL REMEMBER HOW IT FEELS

    WELL THE ONES WHO HAD IT ALL
    AND THE ONES WHO MADE A NAME
    WALKIN' SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE NAKED AND THE LAME
    HUNGRY LITTLE CHILDREN ATE UNTIL THEY HAD THEIR FILL
    THEN THEY TUMBLED IN THE CLOVER DOWN BY REGGAEBILLY HILL

    OCEAN DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH
    AND THE RIVER OF BLOOD FLOWED DOWN
    POURIN' OUT FROM A WOUND THAT WOULD NOT HEAL
    ALWAYS AND FOREVER WE'LL REMEMBER HOW IT FEELS

    ON THE TOP OF THE HILL THEY WERE DANCIN' THROUGH A FIRE
    WHIRL AWAY THEIR SORROW AS THEY MOVE A LITTLE HIGHER
    SLOWLY MAKIN' CIRCLES THROUGH THE PURPLE SKY UNTIL
    YOU COULD BARELY SEE THEM WAVING DOWN ON REGGAEBILLY HILL

    OCEAN DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH
    AND THE RIVER OF BLOOD FLOWED DOWN
    POURIN' OUT FROM A WOUND THAT WOULD NOT HEAL
    ALWAYS AND FOREVER WE'LL REMEMBER HOW IT FEELS

    ALWAYS AND FOREVER

  14. Disc 2 - Coast Of Marseilles

    Keith Sykes

    I sat there on the coast of Marseilles
    My thoughts came by like wind through my hand
    How good it'd be to hold you
    How good it'd be to feel like that again
    How good it'd be to feel like that again

    Would you be remembering me?
    I ask that question time and again
    The answer came and haunted me so
    I did not want to think it again
    I did not want to think it again

    You make it hard for me to forget
    I haven't stopped loving you yet

    When I left the coast of Marseilles
    I hadn't done what I'd come to do
    I spent all the money I'd saved
    And did not get over you
    I did not get over you.

  15. Disc 2 - Lovely Cruise

    Drink it up
    This ones for you
    It's been a lovely cruise
    I'm sorry it's ended
    It's sad but it's true
    Honey it's been a lovely cruise

    These moments were left with
    May you always remember
    These moments are shared by few
    There's wind in our hair
    And there's water in our shoes
    Honey, it's been a lovely cruise

    These moments we're left with
    May you always remember
    These moments are shared by few
    And those harbor lights
    Aw they're coming into view
    We bid our farewell much too soon
    So drink it up
    This one's for you
    Honey, it's been a lovely cruise
    Yea baby, it's been a lovely cruise
    Oh darlin' it's been a lovely cruise

  16. Disc 2 - Oysters and Pearls

    Beach House on the Moon

    Lindbergh left Long Island in 1927
    Thumbed his nose at gravity
    And climbed into the heavens.
    When he returned to earth that night everything changed,
    For the pilot and the planet, everything was rearranged.

    We're a pretty mixed up bunch
    Of crazy human beans
    It's written on our rocket ships
    And in early cave wall scenes.

    How does it happen,
    How do we know,
    Who sits and watches
    Who does the show?

    Chorus
    Some people love to lead
    And some refuse to dance.
    Some play it safely, other take a chance.
    Still it's all a mystery
    This place we call the world
    Where most live as oysters
    While some become pearls.

    Elvis was the only man from Northeast Mississippi
    Who could shake his hips and still be loved by rednecks, cops and hippies.
    It's something more than DNA that tells us who we are
    It's method and it's magic, we are of the stars.

    Chorus
    Some never fade away, some crash and burn
    Some make the world go round, other watch it turn.
    Still it's all a mystery
    This place we call the world.
    Most are fine as oysters
    While some become pearls.

  17. Disc 2 - Wildflowers

    Wildflowers
    Tom Petty

    You belong among the wildflowers
    You belong in a boat on the sea
    Sail away, kill off the hours
    You belong somewhere you feel free

    Run away, find you a lover
    Go away somewhere all bright and new
    I have seen no other
    Who compares with you

    You belong among the wildflowers
    You belong in a boat out at sea
    You belong with your love on your arm
    You belong somewhere you feel free

    Run away, go find a lover
    Run away, let your heart be your guide
    You deserve the deepest cover
    You belong in your home by and by

    You belong among the wildflowers
    You belong somewhere close to me
    Far away from your troubles and worries
    You belong somewhere you feel free
    You belong somewhere you feel free

  18. Disc 2 - Defying Gravity

    DEFYING GRAVITY

    I live on a big round ball
    I never do dream I may fall
    And even one day if I do
    Well I'll jump up and smile back at you
    I don't even know where we are
    They tell me were circling a star
    Well I'll take their word, I don't know
    But I'm dizzy so it may be so

    I'm riding a big round ball
    I never do dream I may fall
    And even the high must lay low
    But when I do fall I will be glad to go
    Yes when I do fall I will be glad to go

  19. Disc 2 - It's A Big Old Goofy World

    It's A Big Old Goofy World
    Jimmy Buffett

    Up in the morning
    Work like a dog
    Is better than sitting
    Like a b__p on a log
    Mind all your manners
    Be quiet as a mouse
    Some day you'll own a home
    That's as big as a house

    I know a fella
    He eats like a horse
    Knocks his old b____
    Round the old golf course
    You oughta see his wife
    She's a cute little dish
    She smokes like a chimney
    And drinks like a fish

    There's a big old goofy man
    Dancing with a big old goofy girl
    Ooh baby
    It's a big old goofy world

    Now Elvis had a woman
    With a head like a rock
    I wished I had a woman
    That made my knees knock
    She'd sing like an angel
    And eat like a bird
    And if I wrote a song
    She'd know ever single word

    Kiss a little baby
    Give the world a smile
    If you take an inch
    Give 'em back a mile
    Cause if you lie like a rug
    And you don't give a d___
    You're never gonna be
    As happy as a clam

    There's a big old goofy man
    Dancing with a big old goofy girl
    Ooh baby
    It's a big old goofy world

    So I'm sitting in a hotel
    Trying to write a song
    My head is just as empty
    As the day is long
    Why it's clear as a bell
    I should have gone to school
    I'd be wise as an owl
    Stead of stubborn as a mule.

    There's a big old goofy man
    Dancing with a big old goofy girl
    Ooh baby
    It's a big old goofy world

    There's a big old goofy man
    Dancing with a big old goofy girl
    Ooh baby
    It's a big old goofy world

  20. Disc 2 - Death Of An Unpopular Poet

    by Jimmy Buffett

    I once knew a poet who lived before his time
    He and his dog Spooner would listen as he'd rhyme
    Words to make you happy and words to make you cry
    And then one day the poet suddenly did die.

    But he left behind a closet filled with verse and rhymes
    And through some strange transaction
    One was printed in the Times
    And everybody's searching for the king of underground
    They found him down in Florida with a tombstone for a crown.

    And everybody knows a line from his books that cost $4.99
    I wonder if he knows he's doin' quite this fine.

    'Cause his books are all best sellers and his poems were turned to song
    They had his brother on a talk show though they never got along
    And now he's called immortal, yes, he's even taught in school
    They say he used his talents, a most proficient tool.

    But he left all of his royalties to Spooner his old hound
    Growing old on steak and bacon in his doghouse ten feet 'round
    And everybody wonders did he really lose his mind
    No, he was just a poet who lived before his time
    Yes, he was just a poet who lived before his time.

  21. Disc 2 - Blowin' In The Wind

    Blowin' in the Wind
    Bob Dylan

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you can call him a man
    And how many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she can sleep in the sand
    And how many times must the cannonballs fly
    Before they are forever banned
    The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind

    Now How many years can the mountain exist
    Before it is washed to the sea
    And how many years can some people exist
    Before they're allowed to be free
    And how many times can that man turn his head
    Pretending he just doesn't see
    The answer, my friends, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind

    How many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky
    And how many times can a man turn his ear
    Before he can hear people cry
    And how many deaths will it take till we learn
    That too many people have died
    The answer, my friends, still blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind

    Yeah, The answer, my friends, is still blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind

  22. Disc 2 - A Pirate Looks at 40

    PIRATE LOOKS AT FORTY
    Jimmy Buffett

    Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call,
    Wanted to sail upon your waters
    since I was three feet tall.
    You've seen it all, you've seen it all.

    Watch the men who rode you,
    Switch from sails to steam.
    And in your belly you hold the treasure
    that few have ever seen, most of them dreams,
    Most of them dreams.

    Yes, I am a pirate two hundred years too late.
    The cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder
    I'm an over forty victim of fate
    Arriving too late, arriving too late.

    I've done a bit of smugglin'
    I've run my share of grass.
    I made enough money to buy Miami,
    But I pissed it away so fast,
    Never meant to last, never meant to last.

    I have been drunk now for over two weeks,
    I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks,
    But I've got to stop wishin',
    Got to go fishin', I'm down to rock bottom again.
    Just a few friends, just a few friends.

    Instrumental

    I go for younger women, lived with several awhile
    And though I ran away, they'll come back one day.
    And still could manage a smile
    It just takes awhile, just takes awhile.

    Mother, mother ocean, after all these years I've found
    My occupational hazard being my occupations
    just not around.
    I feel like I've drowned,
    Gonna head uptown.
